Who are Women for Fair Voting
Our goal is to work for the following objectives:
1. advise on the design of voting systems which encourage the removal of barriers to the representation of women.
2. educate Canadians about the advantages of a proportional voting systems for the representation of women and other under-represented groups.
3. reach out to individuals and groups seeking their support.
Statement of purpose
We hope that by forming this new group, we will be able to help fulfil part of our statement of purpose. As you may recall, this statement of purpose now states that Fair Vote Canada will work for:
Fair representation for women, and for minorities and Aboriginals: Our legislatures should reflect the diversity of our society. To enable this, voting systems must be designed to remove barriers to the nomination and election of those who are under-represented.
